When Doug #4 is delivering pizzas on a bike, it is implied that he is delivering in Miami. Clear in the scenery are California Fan Palms. Although not as common in Florida as California, Fan Palms are still visible in some parts of Florida, but do not appear as tall or abundant in Florida as depicted. See more »

reasonably funny
1 July 2008 | by (Richardson, TX) – See all my reviews

I think this was a good film with a good concept and adequate execution. Michael Keaton is a workaholic who doesn't have any time for his family, so he goes to a scientist who clones him so he can have the best of both worlds. Complications ensue, however, and Keaton finds that things are going as expected, so he proceeds to make more duplicates, which of course leads to further complications. I loved the part where the duplicates make one of themselves, whom the original Keaton refers to as "Rain Man." The bedroom, home, and work scenes are all hilarious, and the movie also has a good cast. If you want to see a good comedy, I recommend this one. You won't be disappointed.

** 1/2 out of ****
